I actually prefer this mare’s dam’s pedigree over her sire’s, although I did like Chief Bearhart when he was running (he was also out of Amelia Bearhart).
KWPN will take a TB mare without inspection. It can be difficult to get a TB mare approved AHS. The remainder (GOV, RPSI, OldNA/ISR, AHHA, BWP) require inspection but are less strict.[/QUOTE]
From a sport perspective, I much prefer the sire side… Not many names up close dam-side that have produced any UL sport horses as of late. Farther back you have some very desirable names and linebreeding to Pocahontas – there is Dr Fager, but that is far back and not really a strong enough influence to make me think this mare screams UL potential. Storm Cat happens to be a favorite of mine for hyper-athletic LL prospects, but the world is teeming with them and I’m not sure I would breed an SC mare unless she really was special. From pedigree alone I’d guess she’d need some improvements in the trot and walk, and possibly improvements in the hindquarters. OP, got pictures?
Of the suggestions, Buddenbrock has been a tried and true for nice LL horses. Tatendrang may give you a little more spice but IMHO I really like the TBx I’ve seen by him.
